There are dating applications on play store that mostly conform to society’s heterosexual norms. Developers overlook the gay section of communities who wish to find love online. Due to a lack of good dating apps built for them, they are unable to experience the joy of online dating. It was with this in mind that Joel Simkhai developed Grindr, an online dating application exclusively for gay, bi and trans people. It was released in 2009 and since then, it has become the world’s most popular gay mobile app. It allows users to build their profiles in complete anonymity and scour through other profiles based on the filters used. An average of five million users frequents it on an annual basis. It was appropriately dubbed by Vanity Fair as ‘the world’s biggest, scariest gay bar.’


Key Features of Grindr

Safe Search
Grindr ensures that all its users are a hundred percent real and a hundred percent gay. You won’t encounter fake profiles or bots. Users are required to verify their accounts by providing a valid email address. Although some critics say that it strips the app of its anonymity, Grindr argues that it improves portability and spam removal. If you still stumble across questionable users, you can report them. 

Group Chats
You don’t have to stick to one-on-one chats. Grindr has different groups called Grindr tribes. You can identify with a group based on your type preferences. You can form groups of your own as well. All members of a group can share messages and pictures that cannot be shared with members outside of it. It basically becomes your private space. Just sit back and chill with the boys you are fond of in a comfortable window.
